    I AM MANITOBAN
    by Dougald Lamont

    I'm not a farmer, a gang member or an arsonist.
    I don't live in a sod hut, I don't eat Red River cereal every day for breakfast.

    That's a block heater cable, not an electric car.

    As it happens, I do know Tom, Dick and Sally from Winnipeg
    Tom is my cousin. Sally dated several friends of mine.

    It's a jambuster, not a jelly doughnut.
    A nip, not a hamburger.
    When you step in a freezing puddle in spring its a booter, not a soaker

    It's pronounced Por-tij and Main, not Por-taj and Main.

    I can proudly say that Winnipeg is where the Bronfman's started bootlegging, where Bob Hope first learned to golf, and has the highest per-capita slurpee consumption on the planet.

    Winnipeg IS the centre of the country,
    And the centre of North America, at least when you look at it geographically.

    YES it's COLD but it's a DRY cold
    And the Mosquito, not the spotted owl, should be our provincial bird.

    Manitoba is the ONLY place you can get a decent burger anywhere,
    A surprisingly cosmopolitan place with a vibrant cultural scene, and despite the humiliating departure of our hockey franchise,
    The BEST part of Canada!!

    My name is JJ
    AND I AM MANITOBAN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
